A microgrid research update

Elissa Welch December 20, 2013

CE3 is pleased to provide an update on its microgrid research at Ohio University.

Our blog, "Microgrids: An Integrated 21st-Century Solution" was recently posted on the website Environment, Conflict and Cooperation, a project of Adelphi, a German think tank for policy analysis and strategy consulting. The blog was written by CE3's Mike Zimmer, executive in residence, and Elissa Welch, project manager and explores the opportunities and challenges of expanded microgrid deployment in the U.S.
